Of the many delightful aspects of Cypress Creek I am surprised that the key lime pie dessert was the first thought that came to mind since I loved everything about our last visit. However this pie is the best version I've ever had anywhere. Try to save room or take home. On to the restaurant as a whole: the food... More

No, this was not my/our first experience with Cypress Creek Grille. And, hopefully, it won't be our last! Excellent menu, pleasant staff (AND owner!!), nice atmosphere, beautiful view, etc. This is probably our most favorite place to eat; whether it be a special occasion, a business lunch/dinner, or just a casual meal, THIS place is excellent!

While the interior of this restaurant is spacious, simple, and enjoyable, and while the view of the water is beautiful, the true star at Cypress Creek Grill is the food! Anticipate mature dishes like bacon wrapped scallops and lemon and thyme crusted fish. The menu is varied with dishes for seafood lovers as well as grilled favorites. My wife ordered... More

Cypress Creek Grill was a great place to take a customer for lunch. The restaurant provides a nice comfortable atmosphere to sit, talk and eat. The service was helpful and friendly. I never had Hatteras style Clam Chowder, but it was a very good start to the meal. For my main course I ordered the petite, portion entree Crab Cakes... More

Very friendly, but one would think thay the menu would include fresh & local seafood. Unfortunately, nothing on the menu was fresh and even the Rockfish tasted as though it was freezer burnt.

I go often and never have I had a bad experience. I love that they have full AND half sized portions. The food is solid and reasonably prices the staff and service are seamless. It's really a nicely run restaurant. The owner is often there which is a nice touch and if you are a boater or from out of... More

Just off Water Street in downtown Elizabeth City is one of the best restaurant renovations of an old store front to be found. The food is quite good, especially their Thursday Night Special: Brisket! Never mind needing a knife to cut it; this is so tender, a fork is all you need. If you sit near the front there's a... More

The food is really good at Cypress Creek. The prices are mid-range and the service is excellent. They are extremely busy during lunch hours but dinner hours are more relaxed and the restaurant noise is more subdued. This is one of my favorite restaurants.
